Investor Office Hours

09:00 AM @ Investor Office Hours @ TechSpring in Springfield, MA
Wednesday, May 02, 2018

  money_jar_pic.jpg    Investor Office Hours gives entrepreneurs an opportunity to meet with angel investors who have experience with early-stage investing. Entrepreneurs will learn about funding sources in Western Massachusetts, what angel investing is and what it isn't, who it's for, and how to determine if it's right for their startup. Office Hours are unstructured discussions and involve no decisions about funding.

Session begins with a group presentation @ 9am by a private investor on the basics of early-stage funding and the typical investment process. Following this, each entrepreneur will meet one-on-one with an angel investor, who will provide feedback on the business venture and answer questions about the angel investing process.

*Please note:   This is an in-person meeting - remote sessions are not available.   Due to limited seating, you must cancel 48-hours prior to the event start time or you will be banned from participating for 90 days.  


Attending an Investor Office Hours session does not guarantee your company will be considered for funding by any of the angel investors or groups they are associated with. This is not a screening session and you are not pitching for funding. 

What is covered during the Investor Office Hours?

  • How to determine appropriate sources of funding for your opportunity
  • How to present yourself to investors
  • How to match your business to funding sources
  • What investors look for
  • Your questions about the funding process
  • Confidentially discuss your opportunity

May's Tap into TechSpring: The Upside of Personal Data Collection

05:00 PM @ TechSpring in Springfield, MA
Thursday, May 10, 2018

 

Your personal data has quietly evolved from private to public, and everyone seems to be profiting — except you.

The dark side of personal data collection is the sneaky and manipulative ways it targets you with suggestions expertly tailored to fit your psychographics. Marketers and special interest groups found gold in them thar hills, and they’re greedily mining it to make unprecedented profits.

But there’s another side to that data use. One that is bright and wholesome and expertly tailored to make YOU the beneficiary of that digital gold. Healthcare organizations are discovering ways to interpret that valuable data to shed the “one size fits all” approach to patient care, and instead personalize patient care with precision, targeting education, disease intervention, and removing barriers to help patients achieve their health goals.

Join us Thu, May 10 (5-8p) at Tap Into TechSpring as we learn how healthcare organizations are realizing the value of better knowing their patients to bring them better health.
